    1. Thanks for your question!

      Unfortunately I don't know much about xapo. Does it allow to sign messages or to export a private key?

      If you are an advertiser, you can click "Start editing" button on your campaign's page and use a password given to you upon campaign creation.

      If you are a publisher, you can embed your change request into your page as a HTML comment and contact support (or just create a new ad unit).
